It's a perfectly fine, unremarkable hotel.

Given the many positive reviews of this hotel on Expedia and TripAdvisor, I was expecting the Drakes of Brighton to be something particularly special. But after our stay I concluded that it is just a perfectly fine, unremarkable hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was very nice, but I really couldn't find anything noteworthy that would make me recommend it to anyone, particularly for the price.

Amazing hotel and experience - Room 301 (bath in the window suite) was terrific.

Me and my girlfriend stayed a night here around valentines, reasonable standard hotel but seemingly charging top tier prices for what is not quite a top tier experience. Overall a good hotel but not value for money.

Very obliging Staff who found me a spare phone charger for my stay. A superb breakfast and generally perfect, comfortable interior and atmosphere.

A truly wonderful, eccentric, quirky boutique hotel full of character and charm. The staff could not be more helpful and breakfast was exemplary.

Nice hotel, well positioned in terms of beach and town centre, eclectic surrounding area. Not sure it was value for money

The check in was smooth and pre arranged parking was available when we arrived. The hotel is quite modern in a classic manner but needs some updating in the rooms. The front windows weren't able to be locked as some of the closeurs were missing. The furniture had water marks on the surface and I would have thought there was a way the hotel was able to resolve this. I stayed two years ago and the same situation was visable. For a luxury hotel I would have thought this would be maintained better. Over all the staff were helpful and accommodating.

Nice niche hotel in a great location

Pros: location, brightness of the room.
I liked this hotel. It is right across from the pier but not as noisy as I feared. The room was small but clean and bright and generally comfortable. The bathroom was the shower which I had never experienced before and it was a little odd but if that doesn't discomfit you then I'd recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful.
